SEAL of Protection Series, Book 1: Protecting Caroline [Cover Release]

Protecting Caroline
SEAL of Protection Series Book 1
Release Date September 8th
Author - Susan Stoker

Synopsis -

Matthew “Wolf” Steel hated flying commercial. Luckily his job as a Navy SEAL meant he didn't have to do it very often. He’d been unlucky enough to be assigned a middle seat on the cramped jet, but fortunately for him, the woman next to him was willing to switch seats with him. Hoping for a relaxing flight, Wolf was pleasantly surprised at the good conversation and sense of humor the woman had as they flew 36,000 feet over the countryside.

When Caroline boarded the plane to Virginia to move across the country for her new job she never expected to be seated next to the hottest guy she’d ever seen. She also never expected he’d be so easy to talk to. She knew he’d never be interested in talking to her if he hadn't been trapped in the seat next to her, but it was a nice way to spend a long plane ride.

Neither Wolf nor Caroline were prepared for a terrorist hijacking of their plane. Luckily for them, and for every passenger aboard, Wolf and his two teammates were prepared to take action. No one could know that everyone’s actions from that day would lead to long-term consequences. If Caroline thought that would be the last time she’d see, or need, Wolf, she’d be sorely mistaken. It will take Wolf’s entire SEAL team to get to the bottom of the terrorist attack, and save the life of the woman Wolf knew he’d never be able to live without.

Start the SEAL of Protection Series with Caroline and Wolf's story


Wolf smiled down at the woman in his arms. Caroline fit perfectly against him. He couldn’t remember having a date where he’d had a better time, especially when sex hadn’t even been on the table. He knew they’d have to wait. She physically wasn’t up for it for one, and Wolf didn’t want to rush it. He loved just sitting and talking to her and getting to know her. Perhaps that was what was missing on his other dates—the connection, the getting to know each other outside the bedroom.
“Why the nickname Wolf?” Caroline murmured softly from beside him, asking the question out of the blue.
Wolf looked down. It actually sounded strange to hear his nickname coming from her mouth. He was so used to her always calling him “Matthew,” in fact he preferred it.
“I’d love to tell you it came about because I’m stealthy or that I have the patience of a wolf, but alas it’s nothing so manly as that.”
Caroline picked her head up so she could see Matthew better. “Now I’m really interested. Go on.”
“Many times in the military nicknames come from a soldier’s name. Like, if my last name was Wolfgang or Wolfowitz, drill sergeants and the other guys would start calling me Wolf.”
“But your last name isn’t Wolfgang or Wolfowitz.” Caroline said giggling, stating the obvious.
Wolf chucked Caroline under her chin. “Yeah, well my nickname came from boot camp. It was a completely new experience for me and I was worked harder than I’ve ever been worked in my life. I was always hungry. Apparently every time we went in for chow I ate my food so fast I finished way before everyone else. I’d also be happy to eat anything the other guys didn’t want.”
Caroline sat all the way up, fully awake now. “Oh my God, don’t tell me. You were Hungry Like a Wolf?”
Wolf laughed and grabbed Caroline so she fell back against him. He loved how she snuggled back down into him, shifting around until she was comfortable, like an animal burrowing down into their bed for the night. “I haven’t thought about that old song in forever. Jesus. And actually, yes, I was always “wolfing” down my food. The name stuck.”
He loved hearing Caroline giggle. He knew she hadn’t had a lot of reasons to laugh recently.
They both settled back down into watching the movie. When Wolf shifted about twenty minutes later, Caroline murmured under her breath and snuggled deeper into him. The fact she was asleep, but still turned toward him made his heart clench. Wolf was amazed she was such a heavy sleeper. In his line of work it didn’t pay to sleep as heavily as she apparently did, so it’d been a long time since he’d seen it.

Susan Stoker has a heart as big as the state of Texas where she lives but this all American girl has also spent the last fourteen years living in Missouri, California, Colorado, and Indiana. She is quite the romantic and even met the love of her life on "Hotmail classified" before online dating and sites like even existed!
Susan has been reading romance novels since middle school and once crossed out the names of the main characters in a book and changed them to her own and to the name of her crush. She's been writing scenes for years, developing her unique writing style.
Susan loves writing but her true passion is adopting dogs from rescue groups and shelters. Susan and her husband have had a total of nine "rescued" dogs since 2000 including a variety of basset hounds and bloodhounds. She has recently branched out and adopted a basset/terrier mix who acts more like a terrier than a basset (i.e. digging, eating a couch and being hyper).
